Okada Manila COO Byron Yip has been promoted to president of the casino hotel.

Yip, whose responsibilities have included Okada Manila’s casino, succeeds Takashi Oya, who also served as co-vice chairman of Tiger Resort, Leisure and Entertainment, the Philippine-based company that operates the property as a subsidiary of Japan’s Universal Entertainment Corp.

Yip’s “remarkable business leadership has led to the phenomenal growth of Okada Manila and made it a leading integrated resort in terms of gross gaming revenue in the Philippines,” said Hajime Tokuda, who heads the overseas business division of Tokyo-listed Universal.
